Preston Home Extensions And Renovations Projects

Whether you are a newbie just entering the property market or have been around the block a few times, a home extension or renovation is something you may want to consider. If you own a house in Preston, but your family has outgrown the space, then an extension or renovation might be just what you need. Remodelling simple structures like floors and walls or adding an additional bathroom, bedroom, or family room can turn a mediocre house into your dream home.

An extension or renovation is a good option to consider rather than uprooting the family and moving to a new location. Remodelling gives you the opportunity to personalise your home exactly how you want it, or change the overall feel of your out-of-date home to something really special. Period Extensions & Designs have more than two decades of experience helping the residents of Preston to turn their house, into the home of their dreams.
